Workshop: cultivation and projects in a flower farm

26th-27th june 2021

During the course, you will meet the cultivation world, from the soil composition, to the project, the sowing and the growth, until the picking and the preservation of the flowers.

The lessons will focus on the species cultivated to Puscina Flowers, we will particularly take into account, according to our experience, more productive varieties, the ones that can be cut off and, at the end, the kinds of flowers more required on the market. Most of the course will be dedicated to practical activities as the transplanting of annual herbaceous species, the division of dahlia tubers and, of course, picking in the garden.
